While my husband & I were at work out puppy got out of his kennel and wet our terrazo floor. Since we didn't get home till pretty late and the wetness sat there for a full day, the floor got stained. I have tried many diferent things including peroxide and baking soda as a friend sugested, but it didn't work. PLEASE HELP!!! We're renting and need to get the stain off the floor.

Urine has a lot of acid in it, so the etched mark may need to be polished out of the concrete/terrazzo. You may need someone with a floor buffer to do a good polishing job to return the surface to smooth.

Keep going with the peroxide and baking soda poultice if it was working at all, though. Multiple treatments may help.

You spread it on the stain, and then cover it with plastic or tin foil. Tape it tight around the edges to keep the air out and leave covered for 24 hours. It almost works like a salve, pulling the stain up out of the stone. Have seen it work wonders on marble. And, it's not very expensive. Under $10 here.
